Help me hit things better!

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I've recently come back to my Warrior and have gone the Fury route. Over the last couple of weeks I've managed to scrape together some gear and AP to where I can raid again.

I think I've got the basics down but my DPS seems quite rubbish :( Is someone able to give me some pointers to work on please? I've only just gotten my 2PC last night so this may help somewhat, unfortunately I don't have a CoF and not sure I'll get one given everyone is focusing on ToS now.

Armory is here: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/khazgoroth/euthenize

Starting to learn the fights better now, but one thing that immediately jumped out at me is my terrible enrage uptime? Is this the source of my woes?

I looked primarily at Goroth because that's as close to a Patchwerk style fight you can get. Here are some of my observations:

Overall, it looks like you're playing it pretty well. You said that your enrage uptime is terrible and it could be better, but honestly it's not awful. You also, on average, cast raging blow before bloodthirst (which is fine if you're already enraged) but you might see some better dps if you swap those two. For example, one of the times you charge in after infernal burning the first ability you cast is raging blow and then you follow up with BT and furious slash. BT first if you're not enraged then raging blow. Otherwise, you're missing out on dps.

Your BC window needs a little work. Fury relies pretty heavily on the damage done in battle cry. For your opener, you cast your BC macro, rampage, RB, BT, furious slash, Odyn's Fury, RB, and then Rampage right as it ends. That FS is a wasted GCD because it does very low damage. Instead, if your opener is Rampage, RB, BT, OF, RB, you can get your last BT in with enough haste to extend your enrage until you have frothing berserker for rampage. It also puts more of your Odyn's Fury in the battle cry window.

You're using Umbral Moonglaives which is an awesome trinket, but you're using it at the start of your BC window. Since the trinket lasts for 8 seconds and BC lasts for 7, the final big damage burst of umbral is not critting. Use Umbral on the GCD before you pop your BC macro so that the burst is at the end of battle cry instead of after it.

You used a potion of old war right before execute phase. I'm fairly certain it's kind of wasted at that point in time because Old war doesn't sync with execute spamming. It's better to use old war when you're going into a normal burst BC window. (That may just be the case with arms, with which I'm most familiar.)

In execute phase stop casting rampage. Dump your rage into execute as BC is coming up, then pop battle cry and dump all your rage again into execute while using BT to keep up enrage for huge burst windows.

You did a good job not letting your juggernaut stacks fall off. Most of your CDs seemed pretty well used. Just tune up some of the rotation, work on your execute phase and BC window, and you'll probably see a DPS jump.

Thanks for the input! I actually jumped into the Warrior discord and found the same mistake with my opener too. Now it will be BT then glaives then my macro leading in to my BC rotation.

Good to know its just some tweaking....which I figured but coming from my lock where I could get some consistent damage its quite depressing!

Most of this last week has been UI changes just so I can track things better and everything is laid out clearly. I am impatient though and also want to contribute to the raid. I'll spend some time bashing the dummies to get that muscle memory up!!

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BFA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
